Bringing his characteristic impassioned and eloquent playing, Gautier Capuçon performs Saint-Saëns' First Cello Concerto, led by acclaimed conductor Stéphane Deneve. Respighi's Pines of Rome closes this program with its vivid Roman scenes, from children playing near a Renaissance villa to hymns echoing through the halls of the ancient catacombs.
Take a peek behind-the-scenes and experience a San Francisco Symphony performance in the making. It begins at 8:30am with coffee, doughnuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am. Then, watch as the conductor and musicians collaborate to bring the music to life.
